Revolutionary new forks

If you're passing a newsagent, take a look at p34 the Feb issue of Performance Bikes and you will see that someone has 'invented' Girdraulic forks (updated with CNC legs and Ohlins shock) and fitted them to an R1. One caption reads " I know the potential is there for this type of design to be superior to telescopic forks".

Add this to Ducati's recent 'invention' of a UFM bolted to the heads and swing arm coming off the rear of the engine, and before long someone may 'invent' a whole Vincent...

I notice in all the write ups on that site no one mentions the man Phil himself, perhaps theyv'e never heard of a vincent.

Have I told you about my tank slapper on my C Comet? Ouch! Broken shoulder blade, 2 broken ribs, dislocated knee, concussion and then there were the repair bills. Ouch again. But don't let me put you off :)
